About This Boat

THE DESIGN

The Balance 620 is an ultra high performance expeditionary class world voyaging catamaran, built with epoxy, e-glass and carbon reinforcement. She is based on our highly successful Balance 601, but incorporates a range of new features and innovations as well as enhanced aesthetics. She is the new big brother of our award-winning 526, Cruising World Magazines Export Yacht of the Year in 2017. The intent of the 620 in our brand range is to offer a high performance, high pay-load capacity expeditionary cat that can be configured as either a three, four, or five cabin yacht. As with all of our larger range catamarans, she is a semi-custom yacht built to our customers exact needs, both in terms of interior configuration and finishes as well as equipment and deck layout. We start with our fully tooled hulls, decks, and coach tops, but the rest of the yacht is totally customer choice. Prices for the 620 start at $2,499,000. All prices are FOB St. Francis, South Africa, facility. balancecatamarans.com

FEATURES

The Balance 620 is foam core, e-glass, carbon reinforced and only epoxy resins are used in her layup. All of her furniture is hand-crafted foam sand-which. She is a cutter-rig for ease of use by a small crew and designed specifically for high speed oceanic adventure travel. We can build her with a fixed helm or with our ground-breaking, award-winning, Versahelm design, which enables her to be sailed in the open air on pleasant days or piloted down below in total protection in inclement weather using the same carbon wheel. As with all of our designs, the focus is on simplicity and practicality for people who will often be sailing far from marine repair facilities. 

ABOUT BALANCE

Founded by World Champion catamaran racer and author Phillip Berman, Balance Catamarans are the finest high-performance adventure catamarans on the planet.

After managing the sale of hundreds of catamarans over the past decade – new and used – we’ve learned how catamarans are built, how they break and fall apart, how they sail in the most dangerous conditions, which systems tend to work and fail, and how they are “really” used by sailors.

We’ve concluded that none of the catamarans currently offered by the major production builders are ideally suited to the needs, budgets, and performance expectations of today’s committed liveaboard voyagers. The catamaran market has simply focused too much on the charter trade and lost the ideal balance of performance, comfort, quality, and practical seamanlike features required by serious sailors.

Balance Catamarans result directly from the enormous fund of experience we have gained through sea trials, numerous builds and designs, owner feedback and the collective result of millions of blue water miles. There really is no substitute for experience and the direct relationships we have had, both individually, and with hundreds of catamaran sailors, has given us the invaluable feedback we’ve relied upon in the design of each Balance Catamaran that we build.

OUR SUCCESS

Balance Catamarans was founded in 2012 and has launched four 60 footers, nine 45 footers, six 52 footers, and one 76 footer. Our catamarans are sailing on every major ocean in the world and have met with critical praise by every major yachting publication. The Balance 526 was the winner of Cruising World Magazines 2017 Import Yacht of the Year (the grand prize) as well Best Multihull Over 50 feet. To learn all about these truly exceptional yachts, to request our pricing, we encourage you to visit our website: balancecatamarans.com 

The interior of  the 620 is customer choice.  We currently offer five specific design ethics a customer may choose from or they can hire their own interior designer and will build to suit.  To see the five interior design ethics Balance offers, please visit balancecatamarans.com
